Complete beginners who never had French before may sign up for a Level 1 course without an evaluation. However, if you took French classes before or studied French on your own, we strongly recommend that you contact us for a free, easy and painless evaluation of your level.

To arrange for an evaluation or if you have any questions, please call us a (415) 362-3666 or send us a message at info@frenchclass.com
